Q:

The adapter vent tube #318317100, for built in electric oven #79040522(640 or 400):

A:

That part is shown in the image below. It fits over the exit vent for the oven cavity. It will slightly reduce the flow of air and smoke out of the oven during the bake mode, broil mode or self clean cycle. If that part has fallen out of the oven, then you may be able to insert a new one yourself. I don't have specific information on how to replace that component. You may be able to push it into place from inside the oven cavity. If not, then you would need to shut off the house circuit breakers for the oven to completely disconnect electrical power and pull the oven out of the cabinet. You would then need to disassemble the top of the oven to access that vent tube and the top of the oven cavity. I don't recommend that you attempt that type of repair yourself. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services .

You should be able to run the self clean cycle with that component missing. I recommend that you clean out any excessive spills before running that self clean cycle. You may notice more smoke coming out of the oven during that self clean cycle. You will need to adequately ventilate your home and protect your pets and birds during that cycle. I do not know of any danger that would be caused by operating the oven normally without that vent adapter in place. I do recommend that you replace it (or have a service technician replace it) as soon as possible. If you can wait until you replace that component before running the self clean cycle, that would be better.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.

Q:

Vacuum, 116 28614801

A:

Thank you for your question on the intermittent connections with the power mate and the upholstery brush are attached to the hose.

It sounds like from your description that the wire harness in the control handle has a problem in the two pin connection.

They will wear and become loose and will only make an intermittent connection.

I would suggest that you replace the wire harness in the handle.

If you feel comfortable with taking the handle apart and replacing the harness I will be happy to help you.

You may also want to check the two pin prongs at the top of the wand where the handle plugs into also.

Wire harness for handle .

Please let me know what you would like to do.

Thank you for the update H. If you would feel more comfortable you can e-mail me @ sande38@searshc.com. Repairing the handle cord is not that hard and I can step you through it if you want to repair it yourself. First I would suggest that you order the wire harness and then we can go through the repair steps if you like. Purchasing a new vacuum cleaner is certainly an option and the model brands you are looking at are very good but very expensive. You can either e-mail contact me or we can do the instruction on this site, which ever you prefer. I have given you both the wire harness link and the terminal prongs for the wand if you decide to replace them also. These two connect with each other when the handle is connected to the wand for the power mate. Sam A.

Q:

how do you remove the back cover to check an electrical connection?

A:

In the Owner's manual on page 5 it will have instructions on how to install the handle and you will need to reverse the steps to remove the handle. Once the handle has been removed your should have access to the power cord connections.
